So, just got this pair of Scarpa's. They look great and at first blush putting them on they felt good. But very quickly I found that they felt very rooming in the toe. They were the correct size because my toe fit where it should, it was the toe...they fit like a boot not like a shoe. I will keep them because, well, I wore them outside. But if you want a "shoe" fit these might not be for you.

Great shoe. Nice around the heel, yet plenty of toe room. Very light weight for the trails. I would not hesitate to get a second pair.

Apart from what Anonymous spouts as being "hilarious that only 10%" know what these shoes are intended for, I love the shoes, wear them on serious hikes and scrambles over slick rock, but have no qualms about wearing them anywhere else, they are that comfortable. So all "approach shoe" snobbery aside, wear them wherever you want. They feel good.

I have narrow skinny feet. These shoes are very narrow. Too tight for me. That is incredible. I am sad as they look awesome, are made from good materials and feature good construction. I had to return them.

After many other tries, including Salomon, this boot was true to the reviews of offering a narrow last. This fits as a 13 Narrow. Very comfortable. Highly recommended.

Before buying these, I read some reviews that were kind of mixed. Some people said they had problems with unraveling and then Scarpa themselves would chime in and say they had defective units and to send them back. My experience has been great with these Cruxs. Ive worn them for about 6 months now and they have held up to normal abuse. I wear them for everyday life and also took them out on a hike in arizona near phoenix. They have held up to a chicago winter and also a hot phoenix hike. Thats all I can really ask from a shoe. One thing to note, when down climbing my hike, I did NOT have any foot slippage forward. I lost big toe nails in the past with Oboz hiking boots and these shoes felt to hug my feet 100% better. The Scarpa cruxs held my foot perfectly. I'd reccomend these. Being these are my first Scarpa shoe, I think I'll try out their full hiking boots.

Great shoe, very comfortable. Bought before a trip to Europe. Never had any foot discomfort as I often do with new shoes and we must have walked for what felt like 100 miles thorough cities and museums. I would definitely buy again but wish they had more colors to chose from.

Stylish. Very comfortable. Super light. Supportive. These have become my favorite "go to shoes". My only complaint is the laces which are some good looking odd material, but the knot comes undone very easily so you need to double knot. I wear a 10 and purchased a 10.5 and they are perfect. Thanks previous reviewer!

Excellent climbing shoe for multi-pitch or warmup. Extremely comfortable for long periods of time. The shoe is quite stiff, but not as stiff as TC Pros. Sizing is typical for Scarpa, which is true to actual size and doesn't seem adjusted for the tightness of climbing shoes. The tensioned rand works as Scarpa says, so the heel is relaxed when the foot is, and tightens when standing on the toes. Stretch is virtually non-existent lengthwise and typical for a leather shoe along the width. Only major improvement this shoe could use is a speed lacing system. Ignore the negative review given previously, it seems that it came from someone who didn't even know he was buying climbing shoes.

Great boots. I've had Lowa, Raichle, Danner, White's, Russell, Merrell, and others and these are as good or better than all. They're rigid enough for rock and steep stuff but still comfortable. Took just a couple days of mild walking around to break in.

PROS: Soft leather makes for a comfy fit that flexes to your foot/toe shapes. Comfortable overall. CONS: Slightly shapeless look; looks a little more like a sock than a shoe when wearing. Also doesn't offer much lateral support/stability because of this. Partial-white outsole is an odd choice, as it will get filthy immediately with use (why not all-black outsole?).

I bought these boots two years ago and used them for trail hiking, biking, and everyday walking practically every single day, year-round in temperatures as low as -45 in Yellowknife (NWT). They are perfect in all kinds of weather, winter as well as long as one stays very active. They are the most comfortable and versatile boots I ever owned and they are well worth the price.

I got these shoes in advance of a trip to Northern Italy where we were planning to do quite a bit of hiking and via ferrata. These shoes were great for those outdoor activities, weren't super heavy, and required no break-in. I've really enjoyed that they're sort of a cross between a hiking boot and a climbing shoe.

I bought these as winter boots, which means, in NYC, that I have been wearing them pretty much every day for the past 10 weeks. They're great. While they have definitely gotten more comfortable with use, they were fine from the first time I put them on. They're light and stay warm and completely dry. They lace up quickly, and there is enough give in the lacing system to adjust to thick socks, thin socks, insoles, etc. It's like your feet are encased in warm, fluffy clouds.

First off I ordered this shoe because I liked the style and now that I have it, I love the style. I normally wear a size 10.5 (44) and that is what I ordered. I should have heeded the advice of other reviewers, as I did return it and exchange for a size 11 (44.5) and it fits fantastic. Like other reviewers, the shoe insert is rather minimal. I have now tried on the shoe with various commercial inserts, but ended up liking a "just above minimal" insert that I took out of a pair of my running shoes...and voila...perfect. Also of note. I called Zappos about the fit problem and they ordered the larger size and set up the exchange process. I had the new size two days later. It worked very slick and I was most impressed with the Zappos response (hence the company name maybe?). All in all I really like the shoe and dealing with Zappos.

These are cool shoes and the color is very versatile. I'm a drummer and bought these specifically for gigging. They are great to play in and I always feel hip when I have them on. They are also very well made. I originally ordered these in my normal size based on the majority of reviews that said "true to size." They looked small out of the box and were definitely snug so I went a half size larger. I prefer shoes to fit on the small side anyway and after I wore the larger size for awhile I felt that maybe I'd made the wrong choice and re-ordered the 1/2 size smaller. Definitely still too small.

These are the greatest shoes! I bought them for travels in Europe, to have a shoe for hiking but could wear with shorts or a skirt if need be. I am since home and wear them for all of my workouts, including my fitness martial art class, hiking, sometimes even running. I can wear them all day and evening and my feet never get tired! They are the best fitting walking/hiking/exercise shoe I have ever purchased. I love the yellow color, different! And the look of the shoe is a bit European so I fit in a bit better while traveling. I get endless compliments on them and have passed the name on to many people. Don't ever stop making them! I am glad to see other colors offered now too. Run, don't walk to buy a pair, you won't regret it!

Wanted something a little more lightweight and flexible than a traditional approach shoe and this is perfect for that. The sole is cushioned enough so you don't beat yourself up on a long descent, but not so much that they make you unstable when carrying a heavy pack on rocky terrain. I've gone running in these and would not recommend them for that, but for anything from heavy pack approaches to day hiking in the summer time they're great.

I own several pairs of non-climbing Scarpa. These are great cold-weather urban and rural walking/hiking shoes. I hope this won't be my only pair because they really last and take punishment.
